Future i live with a nyc c.o. i asked him about classes goin in.. he said he hasent seen any new recruits in over a year or heard of any classes.. and that there is crazy over time.. so it looks like that freeze is on.. i was told in January that my list that was to go in February 2010 goes in November 2010. i called the investigator and she said my list just got signed off for hiring so it wont be maybe till any other year.. so i would think the freeze is still on.. i wont bother anymore..

@ TRod: So I received my appointment letter a while ago and did not return the letter. The investigator told me that new CO's would be downstate a minimum one year, possibly more. I more or less declined because I didn't want to be stcuk in NYC for 2 years or so. I was fine being down there for a while, but not for an undetermined amount of time. Now, I wonder if I made a mistake,...oh well, life goes on. Nothing I can do now.....Happened for a reason. Your thoughts, anyone?

Bx-snake I did my appeals about 11 years ago.. i went to the academy building.. your called in quick.. there will be 2 or 3 men in a confrence room.. they will start to ask you same questions as the psych did.. all 3 of them will switch up on questions.. thats it basicly.. i got my pass decision in 2 weeks.. Dress very professional. head up.. GOOD LUCK.

as per pay 11 years ago come home was 720 after all deductions.. someone in the academy posted abut 3 weeks ago they got 950 with 0 dependents and after all deductions.. i was told they no long take out uniform fee.. only 150 for meal during your time at the academy.. thats the difference from years ago.. so basicly i assume 950 more or less every 2 weeks.. during your time at the academy.

SO HEY EVERYONE I JUST CAME FROM MY ORIENTATION FOR CITY CORRECTIONS AND IT'S NOT LOOKING TOO GOOD. FOR ANYONE WHO IS THINKING ABOUT THE CITY 4 GET IT IT LOOKS LIKE THE FREEZE IS STILL ON. THEY TOLD THE PEOPLE IN THE CLASS THAT THEY NEED C/O BUT CITY ISN'T TELLING THEM THAT THEY CAN DO IT. THEY HAD 3 ORIENTATIONS SO FAR MINE WAS THE 3RD GROUP. ONE OF THE SUPERVISORS EVEN TOLD US THAT ALOT OF C/O ARE GETTING HURT ON RIKERS BC LACK OF C/O'S AND ALSO BC PEOPLE ARE RETIRING. OH YEA AND ONE LAST THING IT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE A CLASS TO GO IN NOVEMEBER 18TH, 2010 BUT THAT GOT PUSHED BACK TO WHEN---->THEY DON'T KNOW.

You hit the nail on the head T ROD!
Why would they keep testing knowing they aren't really hiring. On top of that they charge you filing fees.
Just doesn't make sense!
I'm thinking of once again going back out of state to get a LE position. At least with out of state organizations there isn't filing fees and if you pass the test and all of the prerequisites they hire you. Very little waiting time between testing and the academy.

I took the NYS DOCS test 4/09, just got a canvass letter today, exam #25-168, rank # 0726. What does all this mean, I just a number on the list that gets these routine letters, or am I taking this seriously and need to practice for a physical??? is my rank 726? Is there a Female/Male list? I dont want to call them looking like an idiot, but I have no clue what to expect! Thanks!

rahk2102 take it seriously. if you choose to continue you should be recieving a package in about 5-8 weeks to start the process. take it very seriously if this is what you really want to do.

I appreciate your repoy Mars- I am serious, I just meant I assume Im ranked 726 and didnt really think the odds were in my favor to get a call/interview anytime soon. Why did I receive this letter, Does everyone get it who took the exam? Is there a seperate Male/Female list?

Peter I heard there are no more LE positions.. heard something like that recently????

rahk2102.. male and females took the test together so we are all on that list together.. there is no preference.. we are all on the same boat.. the physical is a joke.. dont worry about that..

i was not trying to be sarcastic rahk2102 just trying to let you know that the canvass letter is the first step in the process, and that if you decided to accept the offer you will be recieving everything you need to complete your process. no there is no seperate list, you recieved this letter because they are interested in you and everyone gets it eventually.

T ROD in Brooklyn, New York said: Future.. the appeals for city is easy.. but you can retest.. failing the first time doesnt mean you dont re-qualify again... same goes for state.. that was the first question i asked the investigator before i continued the process. I think city c.o test is 35 bucks.

Hey T-Rod, I was planning on going to take the NYC DOCS Test now, so whenever the freeze is up I can transfer over NYS to NYC. Im in the process of state now, I just have my one-on-one left and hopefully that goes well.

To Anyone who is going through an appeal....Did you have to pay any personal Psych Doctor to re-evaluate you? I remember when I was Going through an appeal for the City, I had to hire my own psych Doctor which cost me $1500 and at the end I was still considered disqualfied! my money went down the drain, I was totally upset!!!

JT in Utica, New York

52 months ago

I'm taking the upcoming exam on October 16. Assuming I score high enough on it, do you guys have any idea when I'd be called? A neighbor of mine is a CO and says they're hiring like crazy right now and it wouldn't be shocking to hear if people from this exam were contacted soon after. Reading on this forum, I see people who have waited 2 years or more. I hope that's not the case. Another thing, I'm in the process of getting my driver's license (Yes, I never got one and I'm 21 years old. Mainly because I lived in NYC, but now I'm in Upstate NY) so I'm hoping to get that done before I get called for this job.

Last question. After this initial test, what happens after you're called? I've been reading about a Psychological/Medical exam of some sorts? Then comes training at the Academy I'm guessing?

Thanks.

hey JT. after you take the test,if you pass you will be sent a letter telling you to go and take a medical and agility test and right after,the same day you will go to another location not to far from the first one and you will meet with your investigator and the background check will begin,you will be finger printed. you will then go home at the end of the day and you will wait a while. then you will have to go to the academy grounds to take a written psycology test(1500 questions) pay attention to the questions before you answer and remember that the truth is the easiest thing to remember. you will then go home and a few weeks later you will have your one on one with a spycologis. they will ask you some of the same questions from the written test. if you pass your one on one and your backgroung check along with medical and agility you will the wait to get the call for the academy.

yes you must take everything home with you. you will most likely be in a different room. You must dress business attire every friday and sunday upon leaving and returning. you must carry your bags in, no rolling them in. you are not allowed to changed in to a different outfit in the parking lot. the things in the list that say display is what it is a display, regardless if you use it, must have it to display in closet. Everyone need a suit jacket, men need a tie. the pillow and comforter is so once you make up your bed, you dont need to mess it up, sleep on top on there sheets, and use your comforter. You need a sharpie to write on your white tee shirts. do not bring ankle socks. you need white and black socks. Hem tape and sissors. So unless you get a storage room up there you will need to bring your things home every weekend. And you cant stay on the premise for the weekend. start shining boots now, so they are very shiney.

future you dont have to get your own doctor.. like i stated before state appeals you face 3 other doctors unlike city.. which make you spend all that money to disqualify you again .. so unfair.. its crazy.. makes no sense to me.. State has more sense in all the process. unreal with city.. but good idea be on both list.. but you stated transfer over.. they are 2 different agencies there is no transfer.. you have to give up any of ur pension time and start from scratch if you leave to go to another.. they are 2 totally different pay rolls..
